Sreesanth isn't a player who goes about his job like others. And he forces remarks from MS Dhoni which the skipper doesn't reserve for others.

Asked about the temperamental fast bowler's tendency to often lose his cool, Dhoni said after Wednesday's practice match against New Zealand that Sreesanth shouldn't "irritate" his own teammates. "I was very specific to him and told him that he should not cross a few boundaries. If you want to irritate someone, that should be the opposition and not your side," he said in a lighter vein.

"I don't think there was much in that today (Tuesday)," Dhoni said. "I always say a little bit of chit chat is fine. It doesn't mean that whenever we play cricket such things don't happen.

"Till he (Sreesanth) does these things without crossing the boundaries, I'm happy to let him do whatever he wants to. As I said, there are certain boundaries. You should not get too personal with a player."
